Hey I'm not really good at English and I am wondering if I wrote a great essay could I memorise it and write it on the day of the exam? Even if the question doesn't really go with the poem? Would I lose a lot of marks?

Hey I did this for the prelim (basically regurgitated the essay) and honestly I went from an 16 (my best essay ever) to an 8 because I couldn’t relate it to the question. So just try and learn common quotes/ analysis for your essay that works for most. Also there are some common questions: theme, character and scene/ sequence

Thanks. So can my essay only be based on word choice and different writing techniques like similes/personification etc.. as I don't know what else I could write about my poem? Above the poem questions it says use tone, rhyme setting and other weird things but I don't need to right?

Sorry I'm doing poems for my Textual analysis so I'm not sure about writing a poem essay. Someone else might know
